1959 RARE Gold British Presentation Flare Tip Set


1959 RARE Gold British Presentation Flare Tip Set 
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!  

 

  Here we have a highly regarded and rarely seen 1959 Gold Plated British

made flare tip presentation set. The plating and the clear lacquer protective

finish have survived more than 50 years in great shape. The gold plating is

in MINT condition, there is absolutely no loss at all. The TTO head opens

perfectly and closes tightly and evenly as it was meant to do. This beautiful

collectible razor is a very effective closed guard shaver with great knurling

on the handle. The razor feels great in the hand. It has a mild head design

and decent heft of 59g. The handle is about 3 inches long.



  This presentation model of the Gillette flare tip razor came in this classy

and rare leather case, The instruction brochure for this razor is also

included, something rarely seen with this set. The razor is in MINT condition,

the case a little less so due to a few scuff marks as seen in the pictures.

The case is a real beauty as is the entire set. Also included is a NOS

dispenser of 10 Gillette Blue Blades still in the Original box which has

never been opened.



  1959 was a great year for Gillette's classy designs in the US and England.

This is one of my favorites. Great knurling for grip on the handle, and

twist to open mechanism makes it very easy to load a blade. On the inside of

the blade compartment is stamped Brit. Pat. 694093. On the outside bottom of

the blade compartment there are the Roman numerals II. These Roman numerals,

(I, II or III) indicated the aggressiveness of the razor with I being the

gentlest. This is a magnificent set that you will probably never see again.

Please be sure to look closely at the pictures, they are true representation

of this great collectible.
